Review: Julep Cuticle Pusher

Julep recently launched their Cuticle Pusher, which us mavens got a chance to try before it was available (currently sold out!). I'm obsessed with maintaining cuticles and enjoyed their Cuticle Softener, which is supposed to accompany this tool. It costs $14 and is made of stainless steel coated in ultra-durable, bacteria-resistant Teflon. It features an ergonomic grip for precise control.

Results!

To use: Apply Vanish Cuticle Softener & Remover and allow 30 seconds for product to absorb. Hold the pusher so the curve of the hook aligns with the nail beds on your opposite hand. Gently push back the cuticles on each nail using a one-way, upward motion.


PROS

- It is very lightweight and easy to use.
- Sleek design. I didn't find it to be like a medical devise scrapping at my cuticles.
- They offer a Maven discount.

CONS

- Limited supply.
- A bit of an indulgence for the average person painting their nails. I understand why the Julep nail parlors use it but do I really need it at home?


Would you give this product a try?

  2. I actually never push my cuticles back or cut them. It hurts! So I wouldn't use it, but I'm glad to hear they are thinking 'whole nail'.

  3. Don't hate me but my cuticles kind of take care of themselves. I'll put oil on them a couple times a week, but aside from that, they're self-maintaining. Haha! This tool looks a bit intense, but if it works, yay!

  5. @Beth definitely don't cut them! Perhaps use a cuticle softener?
